I am an instructional technologist at a college who is having a whale of a time configuring an Apache web server.
We're trying to deploy a Wordpress blog for our teachers to use to share teaching concepts with each other, and my I.T. department has recommended that we use VMware to establish a virtualized server for this to happen. We have installed a Bitnami Wordpress stack with Apache and Wordpress as a virtualized server. A subdomain was assigned to it (teach.wpcc.edu) and an IP address was issued (10.99.2.64).
The install went well but I've run into a problem that is preventing the completion of our project. Here is the issue. The server (and Wordpress) are accessible on our campus network just fine, but it is not accessible outside our network. The domain resolves to the IP address, but nothing ever loads in the browser.
My I.T. department tells me that they don't know what to do to fix things so the server is available off-site. They are an IIS shop and don't do Apache.
Is there a configuration file I need to modify in order to turn the server to the outside world? Can you walk me through how to do it (or send me somewhere online) for documentation or assistance?
Thank you for any ideas that you have.
